AN educational event with a difference is coming of Blackburn's King George's Hall later this month.

The Ministry of Science Live show features a hovercraft built on stage as it takes an anarchic approach to the subject and how scientists inventors and engineers have shaped and inspired the modern world we live in.

The event takes place on Wednesday October 24 at 2pm. Tickets are £15.50 for adults and £13.50 for under 16s at the KJH box office.
